This course is an intensive, 15-week introduction to time-based digital media processes and practices. With an emphasis on individual and team-based activities, students engage with an array of materials, hardware and software to produce short projects for a variety of potential platforms that include single-channel presentation, web-based presentation including memes and gif animations, portable media, installation and live audio/visual performance. Using 2D animation as a starting point we consider a number of current strategies to produce media (both lens-based and non lens-based), how it has evolved, and how contemporary digital media interface with current cinematic and artistic practices.
